Very Proud of my girl today, she took Yvonne out on a nice hour long trail ride at a slow easy pace, This was Yvonne’s first horse ride (other then when she tried out her girl last week for a trial ride, and bought her new mare) in just over three years.
But this was the first off farm ride, we had a few things that needed tweeking, Yvonne is English trained and boy does she want those stirrips up high LOL, and her and brandy needed to have a talk about bit pressure.. Brandy being Brandy, just stopped moving forward until I -we could figure out what the issue was, Once we figured out that she needed loose rein on her bit, and Yvonne could give it to her, everyone relaxed and a good steady ride was had afterwards.
Way to go Yvonne, so proud of you, can’t believe we didn’t get a photo! Next time.. It was a lovely day and visit, the horse’s did good, Caleb was a touch ouchy on his feet after the trim yesterday but he was a good boy none the less, he gets tomorrow off other then grooming, and bathing as a rest day before the big clinic..
